The Revista Contemporáneos and The Development of the Mexican Theater


In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:

Considerable scholarly attention has been recently focused on the role played by the controversial literary review Contemporáneos (1928- 31) in the history of twentieth-century Mexican letters.1 Traditionally studies about the journal and the group of writers who founded it have been concerned with poetry and prose fiction.2 The purpose of this essay, however, will be to highlight its importance in the introduction of experimental techniques in the Mexican theater.
